Narrated by a retired "rubber man," this classic industrial film shows the uses and manufacturing of rubber products. With excellent images of making boots, tire manufacturing, traction tests, and innovative uses of rubber.
All the script clichs are here: junior sitting in the kitchen complaining, "Aw, who cares about RUBBER anyway?" and gramps, the appreciative rubber factory retiree, on hand to set him straight. "Why, without rubber, the world wouldn't be as nice a place to live in!" Cut to a ten-minute manufacturing montage....

Gramps teaches Junior about rubbers
Gramps, a retired Rubber man lays it THICK into Jimmy how important Rubber is. Now, if you laughed at that sentence, well, you better download this film, as it's just as preposterous as it sounds. You see Gramps and his son worked in the rubber business, so they KNOW all about Rubber shoes, tires, army parts, stoppers etc. Just about the hootiest dialogue you'll ever hear pass between Gramps and Jimmy about the wonder rubber, and yes, a lot of it CAN be construed as sexual,
Jimmy: "Got this sure is springy"
Gramps: "Let me show you something that's springier!" (yikes!)
A hoot and a half! Very very funny. Highly reccomended!
